Virtual and in-person options available! This list is updated as new programs take shape, so check back often. All educational programs can be made into concerts, and I’m always happy to create a custom show for your organization, special event, or to honor a historic space. Just ask! I’m always honored to lend my voice to weddings, bridal showers, handfastings, baby showers, christenings, Wiccanings, bar mitzvahs, bat mitzvahs, Confirmations, First Communions, celebrations of life, funerals, wakes, or parties.
Please Note: I am fully vaccinated and boosted against COVID-19, and will be following official health and safety guidance at all in-person events. Vax proof provided on request.
Traditional Ballads for the Pub Singer
Ballads often conjure the picture of someone singing a long, slow, tragic, solo song about the perils of adventure and the pain of loss. While many ballads fit that bill, all you really need is a song that tells a story with a beginning, middle, and end. Come hear (and sing!) some traditional ballads that fit the definition while defying expectations — and learn a bit of the history behind this ancient singing tradition while we’re at it.
Music and Meter: Poetry and Song
Celebrate National Poetry Month or simply spend some time soaking in the words of well-known wordsmiths set to music. W.B. Yeats, Shakespeare, Kipling, E.L. Blanchard, and more come together in this program to wrap us in beauty, powerful reminders, and a laugh or two.
Love Songs Beyond the Bawdy & Romantic
For every song that chronicles swooning romance or the excitements of lust, there’s another that celebrates love of another kind – between family, colleagues, friends, a craftsperson and their work, and more. Many of them are older than you expect! Sing along with some of my favorites, culled from various traditions as well as the work of folk singer-songwriters of today.
